There is no other part of a woman's body that symbolises this nurturing expression more than a woman's breasts, whether she has children or not. These jam-packed powerhouses of energy have been used and abused for centuries, it’s no wonder breasts bring up so much stuff for everybody. With such a massive reaction, I figure breasts must be pretty important, otherwise come on … Why is it such a big deal to others if a woman chooses to have an Esoteric Breast Massage?
I was inspired to have an EBM from the moment I heard about the modality. I knew instinctively that this was the modality I had been waiting for; the modality where I could address some issues, as no other modality I had come across could. I remember feeling relieved someone had the courage to bring to light the amazing gift our breasts bring to our expression as women and that our breasts are not merely something to sexually objectify and nurse our children with.
I find the EBM practitioners so inspiring, in particular their level of integrity of practice arising from a dedication to drawing out in themselves the quality they also see already present in each and every woman. They were able to deeply honour and respect me in a way that supported me to feel the tenderness I always felt I naturally should be held in. This incredible support gave me the opportunity to raise and release the moments when I did not feel this or express in this way in my life.
The Esoteric Breast Massage is certainly not about having perfect breasts or in any way a solution that would ward off any chances of getting breast cancer, and the practitioners don’t promote it as so. I still have my regular health checks with my GP including the usual recommended breast screenings. What has opened up for me through EBM sessions is the possibility of there actually being room for me to take more loving care of myself in this hectic, performance driven and constantly demanding world we live in. As a result, I am now more likely to go to bed when I am tired and to stop rather than push on through.
Breast care is now part of my regular and ongoing self-care and health care routine…and …I am feeling amazing!
